Re: dvd won't play through PACE hi def converter box,...

Why are you running hdmi to converter box? Run HDMI cable directly from dvd to new Panasonic plasma. The less things in between, the better the picture.

I have rca STB7766G1 converter box can I connect my dvd player

Trial and error. There is no list of products that will work together and how, so when you have situations that come up such as these you have to connect the electronic devices and see what happens. What's worse is that the combination will not always work with the same brands and even if you do get this to work today it might not work tomorrow.
Ok connect the DVD player to the television. Where it says out on the DVD player you connect the connecting cables either yellow, white, and red or green, blue, red, white, red. You connect the other end of them to the television. Put the television on the correct input. Try playing a movie to make sure the dvd player and television are connected properly.
Ok now where it says IN on the DVD player. Connect a yellow, red, and white cable. The other end of that cable connects to the converter box where it says out.
You can also connect the converter box and the dvd player in this way if applicable. If the dvd player has an RF (coax) IN connect a coaxial cable there and connect it to where it says OUT on the converter box.
Then you connect an antenna to where it says ANTENNA IN on the converter box. Now you will have to be able to put your dvd player in input (aux) or turn it to channel 3. You will always leave your dvd player in input (aux) or on channel 3. You will only change channels on the converter box with its remote control or the buttons directly on it. Good luck!

There is a red, white yellow cable on one end and red, blue and blue cable on the other end

One side is standard, Other is HD. Red to Red Blue to White AND When you have Green it goes where Yellow would. Other Blue Would replace Green too. hope that helps. Pretty normal if your TV is HD Ready. Most DVD boxes are standard color coding. Try that.

It's staying on 480i sd why not 1080i

There's only one way to get that TV to switch from 480i (which is an SD or Standard Definition signal) - that's to provide it with an ED or HD resolution signal (a 480P signal is often called ED or Enhanced Definition while 720P, 1080i and 1080P signals are called HD or High Definition).

The old standard yellow composite video cable.
You will not get ED or HD signals through the old composite RCA phono jacks (usually yellow in color), either. You'll need to use an RGB (red, green and blue) component video cable, HDMI cable, DVI, or other type supported by both your TV and the video source (CATV box, Blu Ray disc player, Satellite converter, etc.). More on this, later.
RGB cable.

An HDMI cable - this provides Digital audio signals, too.
A DVI cable.
First, you'll need a source capable of sending ED or HD signals. This can be a progressive scan DVD, Blu Ray player, HD Cable or Satellite converter, or a simple TV antenna. Not all DVD players are capable of the 480P progressive scan output - it must be labeled as such. The DVD movies are not labeled progressive scan as they all will play back at 480P if played in a DVD player capable of progressive scan, otherwise they play at 480i. A stand alone Blu Ray player or one in the Sony PlayStation 3, the older HD-DVD in the Xbox360, (it is important to note that the Nintendo Wii can output either 480i or 480P signals only when connected with their special component video cable), "set top boxes provided when you choose HD service from your local cable provider or satellite TV provider are the main sources for signals better than 480i. As mentioned above, the old standard yellow video jack is not capable of supporting signals better than 480i. You must use the HD jacks and cables between to get these signals into your TV.
The Wii 480P cable assembly - includes stereo audio, too.

Lastly, if your TV has an ATSC tuner (it is not uncommon for it to have an NTSC tuner and CATV tuners as well), you can input a UHF antenna directly into the the antenna terminals on the TV. Broadcasters in most areas have been moved into UHF bands - but some areas have one or two that operate in the VHF bands still. Check antenna web for information and help selecting antennas and broadcasters in your area. The nice thing about the antenna method is that no other cables, converter boxes, etc are needed to enjoy HD signals - plus - they're free!

Just remember you need a source capable of ED or HD signals and a way to get those signals to your TV. The yellow composite cable is from days ago and only passes 480i signals.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thanks!

Our pitchure is not bright or clear as was in store

This actually common I worked in electronics for 13 years. Did they tell you that it has to be hooked up to an High Definition source. A digital cable or Sattelite reciever does not mean its HD also using Coaxle cableor composite(yellow,red,white) will not produce a good picture. You need HDMI or Component(RED,Blue,Green for video and red white for audio) to get a high def pic. Also not all station are broadcast in high def. One other thing is even if you have a High Def reciever you need to go into the menu of the reciever where it says display and and make sure its set for 1080i or maybe 1080p(most dont have this option yet) If you are using a normal DVD player and use the yellow red and white once again picture will be poor. Need to use Component or hdmi and again with component you need to set DVD to either 480p and if its upconvert to 1080p

I'm trying to hook up my Xbox 360 to my Advent LCD TV and I can get it working but the game has no sound or color. I've tried several plug combinations but I just keep getting the same results. So where...

The best thing to use is a scat converter Yellow,Red, and White to scat,but other than that the Yellow,Red, and White plug into the back or the side of the tv.
if you use the converter it wont auto detect like it does with a DVD player or free view box,you will have to change the tv source manual AV1 or AV2 for the scat & S-VIDIO for the Yellow,Red, and White.
If that doesn't work try it on another tv if it's still the same change the cable,or if your tv's HD get a HDMI cable.

Do i need to use HDMI wire if i have a cable box ?

It depens on what the cable box outputs are, you need to see if it has RF Coaxial jack (use CH3 or CH 4 on the TV), composite video out (Yellow RCA jack) with red and white RCA for audio, component video outputs (Red, Green, and Blue RCA jacks), or HDMI output jacks. HDMI and component video are for HI-DEF if you subscribe to the HI-def package. The cable company should provide you with the owner manual. Please post back with more info.

Just want to know if i can get hd channels with a regular comcast motorola dct700 box, if so how? Also, what DVD player should I buy with this, as well as type of cables. TV just given to me, no remote,...

No HD channels on a DCT700, you have to have a HD capable box from comcast. Usually $8.95 a month for box rental. Don't know a lot about DVD players. If you get a comcast HD box, and have an HD TV, you should use an HDMI cable for best picture. Second choice is component cables. Those are the red, white and yellow or red, white yellow, blue and green cables.

There is no input for a coaxial cable on the tv, meaning there would have to some sort of converter box, such as a cable box, to intervene between the cable and the tv. Is there another way of doing this...

Everything with a scart / AV output will work when there is a tuning system inside.
For example a DVD recorder or a videorecoder.
The best is a DVD recoder with HDMI connector because it;s a HD TV.
